president joe biden, and vice president biden -- >> host: when did that happen? >> guest: it happened in 2009. very early -- well, maybe even, well yeah, 2009 in the first part. so, he had the lead for the iraq policy. and a lot of this is reflected in my book. but there was a debate about how much to get involved behind maliki, and the investor at the time, ambassador chris hill pretty much thought that maliki was the man we had to work with and that his rival didn't really have a good chance of making it to the prime minister post not withstanding the fact that his party won more seats than maliki's party but there was a debate in the government where vice president joe biden came down and was in favor of working with maliki as there would be a necessary evil or just the man that was going to be there. so, when things really get hot or when there is a crisis, vice president wyden calls and he called the iranian flights to syria. he called about the release. but it just seems that his call seems to have less and less influence this time it's gone wrong. >> host: let's go to lincoln f
president joe biden will be sworn in from the naval observatory, the official residence of the vice president. the inaugural committee released a web video as the president reflected on what is next for him and his administration. [video clip] >> i started public servants working in communities. throughout my career, what has always given me energy, hope is that good and decent and resilience and strong the american people are. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people, our future. i believe that when our people are succeeding, when they have the tools they need to get a grade education, get a good job, look after their kids, have some basic security, that there is nothing that can stop america. two figures i admire probably more than anybody in american history is dr. king and president lincoln. for me to have the opportunity to use the bible they used on the 105th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the march on washington is fitting. their actions and the movement they represent are the only reason that it is possible for me to be in
come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package. i'm sure joe biden will accept them and joe manchin will accept them and conservatives will accept them to come to the table. i'm sure their membership wants them to do it, not the survivalists or gun manufacturers who have made millions of dollars off the death of 6 and 7 year-olds, the truth. it's not too late. if they keep their feet in cement, they're going to be run over, not by joe biden, but these polls show, by middle america, by gun owners, by people that want to protect their children when they're at school, they want to protect their children at shopping malls, want to protect their children when they're in church, protect their children at movie theaters. this is middle america coming after you, nra, not a politician. >> the president is at the forefront and we have to lot to go through. president obama is reviewing a list of gun control items from joe biden. background checks and limits on assault and ammunition. during the-yesterday, problem talks about it. >> those that apologize gun control or measures have a pr
president joe biden was sworn in before the president. the reason he did it so early because justice sotomayor had to get a train to new york city because she had a book signing for an important memoir because she cut things short and get out early. >> arthel: as that swearing off without a swearing in went off without a hitch but there are big policy challenges. what are you hearing about tomorrow's inaugural address that might set the table for all those battles? >> reporter: we're talking about all this pomp and circumstance tomorrow but it will be back to reality to the national security front. president over the last couple days have been getting regular updates about the terror attack in algeria. that is reminder of the al-qaeda threat all around the world particularly in north africa. on the domestic front, battles, gun control, immigration reform, debt ceiling. the president is going to try to lay out a grand vision. his aides say he wants talk about it coming together but others suggest he wants more division. >> he is going to talk about our political system doesn't require
, please welcome joe biden and mayor michael hunter. [applause] gentlemen. it is, of course, my distinct honor and pleasure to have the opportunity to introduce our good friend and my good friend, vice president joe biden. throughout his career as a public servant, vice president biden has championed issues that are critical to the prosperity and growth of america's cities, and he has engaged directly with the u.s. conference of mayors on a regular basis. during our annual meeting this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. issueer there's a major that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when pres

obama is being officially sworn in as the president of the united states. earlier this day, joe biden was sworn in as vice president of the united states. tomorrow, it will be a ceremonial, but today it is official. what a great day. what a great day that we are celebrating emily's list success in strength in numbers. women leading the way. isn't that exciting? 15 more women senators in the united states senate. that is remarkable. in this cycle, we have 80 more democratic women in the house bringing our number to 61 women in the house. [applause] you hear a lot about how people asking how the republicans are going to reach the women,how are some people going to reach women voters. we are asking them to serve. we're asking them to have a seat at the table. that is why of the congress of the united states that was just sworn in two weeks ago there was a minority congress fear. they have a seat at the head of the table. they have at the head of the table. isn't she spectacular? isn't emily's list spectacular? strategic thinking. we are talking about dedication. we're talking about succe
what the president or joe biden have, would have stopped sandy hook. to claim this this could have stopped sandy hook, it's disturbing and misleading. and rahm emanuel now mayor of chicago, former chief of staff of the president, when he was chairman of the democratic national campaign committee had a strategy to recruit pro gun democrats to retake the house and guess what, they were successful. the president had a policy the first term not to touch the issue of gun control. and they're making conclusions that i think majority of americans don't agree with them. >> megyn: let's talk about the implications of the ad, it makes it like like john barrow is in favor of another shooter like lanza to shoot up a school. is it fair of them, an ad by a pro gun democratic politician, why didn't they use an image of the shooter? stick to the event if you want to remind us of newtown, not a democratic politician that-- >> the reason why the ad he put out is offensive to democrats, he's not saying it's supporting the second amendment, it politicizes almost fetishizing the guns and see it holding
